After reading this post, this evening Ribcage and I watched "Death Dive to Saturn" on PBS Nova.  Your post was a preview that helped me understand some of the info.  Very fascinating.

Sad to see Cassini's demise. My question is this: if we didn't want to chance polluting Titan, for example, with Earthly microbes, why was it okay to drop off the Huygens probe there? Was it microbe-free? Wonder what's in the lakes and seas on Titan. Which brings me to another question. Is Earth then older than Titan? All so interesting... Thank you.

This post of yours made a good trivia game with Ribcage.  He loves trivia and is good at it.  He knew an awful lot of the things I asked him, but he did mess up with Enceladas.  He said it was one of his favorite Mexican foods.

years and years of study still ahead of all those marvelous data and pictures sent back from this brave little explorer

Well I suppose with such a a large number of sun's, some planets have evolved and passed into history although that is too weak a word for that happening.As we have emotions one cannot help feeling sorry for the little explorer, as I expect it's team who have monitored it will mourn that particular loss.

Glad we were able to get the info from Cassini, but it seems

sad that it will become nothing but space dust... Of course that's how it all ends up, I suppose.

Each one of those discoveries is huge on its own, let alone making four major ones...Cassini did a great job during its time on its way to Saturn.
